The mission of the Gogebic Range Genealogical Society is to promote and assist with the research and preservation of genealogy and family history of the Gogebic Range area. This area encompasses Gogebic County, Michigan, and Iron County, Wisconsin.
Our genealogical society is dedicated to helping you find your roots on the Gogebic Range. Our obituary database contains the names of over 70,000 residents who lived on the Gogebic Range between 1890 and the present. Hundreds of records are being added every month.
